Mathias Rastorfer, the longtime director of the reputable Galerie Gmurzynska, shared with us his concerns on the dangers of over marketing art, and told us about his programming for Art Basel’s revels this year.

What works will you be bringing to Art Basel this year?

There will be two curated centerpieces in addition to some highly important individual modern masters and contemporary classic works. One entrance to the booth will show three highly important Joan Miró sculptures, juxtaposed with Miró paintings and collages. At the other entrance, there will be a Zaha Hadid’s recreated architecture exhibition based on Kurt Schwitters’s famous Merzbau for our Merz exhibition running parallel to Art Basel at our Zürich space. Highlights for the central section of the booth will be previously unseen works by Fernand Léger, Wifredo Lam, Yves Klein, and Robert Indiana, to name but a few.
